Psianh Auvyander for CSM 10

My name may have a funny spelling, but I'm here to do some serious work! I am Psianh Auvyander and I'm a member of Noir. mercenary corporation, CEO of Noir. Academy training corporation, and I am here to represent small/medium sized organizations, new players, and mercenaries across the game universe. I strongly believe EVE is a game based around risk, reward, conflict, collusion, coercing, and relationships and - perhaps most importantly - fun, and I will work to maintain and improve upon those tenants.

I'm running for CSM X because I can continue the great work that has been done and build upon it further. I'm running because I will to be a representative for players across New Eden, available, willing, and determined to get your opinions and feelings across to CCP. I will have an open dialogue with players from all playstyles, welcoming conversations about what you want, what you like, what you don't like, and what you dream of. I will communicate with you and for you to make New Eden better next year than it is this year.

I've spent years working professionally and as a volunteer as a community manager. I have the skills and experience required to efficiently collect, present, defend, and fight for concepts and ideas. I'll leverage those skills to ensure that the CSM retains the voice of the players and that CCP hears it.

Since January 2013 - with a short break - I've maintained the CEO position of Noir. Academy, a PvP training organization. I've been a member of Noir. since 2011, playing as a mercenary, fighting in nullsec, lowsec, highsec, and wormhole space. It's vital that EVE continue to be an environment where independent organizations can make a path for themselves; this is the true EVE dream.

I'll work for you as a CSM member, and I'll work for your vote now. Feel free to ask me anything you like on this thread, on Twitter (@wsethbrown), or by email ([email protected]). My responses to your questions will be aggregated onto the post below.

Q: What are your opinion on the recent changes to Eve?

Despite making moving for contracts a bit harder, I'm definitely a fan of the teleportation changes. I've personally seen an increase in capital and supercapital usage, and the same goes for almost all areas of space - which on the surface, may sound like a bad thing, but actually is quite good! Because while there is more usage, it's much more localized than it used to be, those smaller organizations that were always too afraid to use their large assets before now can use them, although there still remains risk of course!

I think the WASD control changes were excellent, despite being somewhat shallow due to the way our server tick works. It's something that so many new players expect and don't understand why it's not included, so I think we'll see a great return on that investment from new players being more comfortable in the early stages of their game life.

PBR. So pretty!

I'm honestly a big fan of the removal of Teams from the game, not necessarily because they were bad, but because it shows that CCP is willing to admit to mistakes and work towards fixing them, improving them - and I think that's vital for the game's longevity.

It's still early to make final judgements, but I like how the T3 destroyers were introduced and implemented, one at a time based on player-actions. That's a really interesting connection to the players that most games can't and don't provide. The destroyers themselves are a really interesting idea, and as I say, time will tell more about their place in the game, but I think we'll look back and think of them warmly.

If there's anything else you'd like to know about, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to go into more detail!

Psianh is the definition of approachable, friendly, and down to earth. Combining those qualities with his effort and knowledge-base, it becomes near impossible to find a reason not to have him at the top of your ballot. I've had the great privilege of CSM related discussion and interaction in the past, and Psianh has always been honest and upfront about his views, while being available and open-minded.

Wish you the best during your campaign, and look forward to seeing you succeed and support the community this year on CSM X, Psianh.

I am fully endorsing Psianh for CSM. I have had multiple dealings with him and have spoken to him in regards to his campaign and feel that he is exactly the kind of person we all need on the CSM.

It is in the best interest of all players to have a diverse and experienced representative group and I feel that, with the influx of so many new players into Eve, Psianh's unique perspective will be an asset to CCP and to all players moving forward.

Please join me in supporting him for CSM.

Include Psian in your voting. He'll make an excellent CSM.

Psianh is a cool dude, I spent a while chatting with him IRL last FF. He is smart and knows game mechanics. It is very important to make sure that CSM 10 has broad representation from all types of players, and having someone who knows the mercenary business is super useful. He will certainly be on my ballot, and he should be on yours as well.

Also, his GF is awesome (as long as she hasn't broken up with him yet. If so, she sucks).

Could you please expand on your thoughts on upcoming changes? Its hard to support someone on corp history alone.

This is a pretty broad question, so if I leave something out that you're interested in talking about in more depth, just let me know!

I've always been an optimist, even when it concerns EVE, so I'm very much looking forward to the upcoming changes. I think we're getting some solid improvements and some interesting tweaks.

  • Recons - I'm interested to see how this is going to play out. With the shorter release cycles, if the Dscan change doesn't provide fun and engaging gameplay, I'd sincerely hope that it's removed similarly to Teams. I am happy to see the Pilgrim get a little love.
  • Tech Three Destroyers - Again, this is going to be an interesting area to keep an eye on, but I'm happy that CCP is taking a step into totally new directions - and how often have you seen threads about creating new destroyers?
  • Sovereignty - Mostly, I'm ecstatic that corporations and alliances are being worked on. I doubt we'll have a perfect system in the first pass, but it's imperative that CCP sprinkle in quality of life changes that make the game easier to play without making the game necessarily easier.

In all, EVE is in a very pivotal period in its history. The game has perhaps never been better, from a potential standpoint, and it's important that we continue to push CCP towards the vision that supports exciting, dynamic, and fun gameplay. A small part of me does fear that CCP may try to cut a few corners, especially when it comes to the major gameplay elements of Sovereignty and POSes, but the effort they're putting into gathering player feedback on these subjects does seem to herald a bright future.

If we make sure progress continues.

You mention being ecstatic that corps and alliances are being worked on. What do you think of the recent push by Jayne Fillon, Mangala Solaris, Sugar Kyle and others to broaden player organizations beyond corps and alliances? NPSI standing fleets, incursions, and casual/new player organizations could all conceivably benefit, and in fact alliances could even be reworked as one of these other-than-corp organizations.

Also, as Adam Smith said, a corporation is just a union of companies[1]. What would you think of allowing more fine-grained organization below the corporation level? Or even, as someone (sorry, forget who) suggested, an LDAP/Active Directory style model?

[1] Not so much any more, but that's what they were when he put quill to paper.
